I am working on an application process using Laravel 4.2.
Users applying with my form need to be able to save their form input for later, or submit it. So right now I have two different buttons, Save and Submit.
The key difference between saving and submitting would be a status. When a user saves their application, their application status will be marked as "in progress", when they submit their application the status would be marked as "completed".
My question is:
In terms of my form HTML structure, How do I differentiate between a saved and submitted application? Just checking whether or not they have filled out all the required inputs would not be reliable, because there is the possibility that the user wanted to add more to it later.
I tried doing a form inside of a form, but quickly realized this would not work.
Does anyone have an idea as to how to accomplish this?
